Dear Parents/Guardians,

I hope everyone is well and looking forward to the full resumption of school next Monday.  We have consulted with Public Health on the guidelines on how to manage symptoms and the potential impact on siblings-this will become increasingly relevant next week.

If a household member has any of the Covid-19 symptoms (common, sometimes or rare) then all household numbers should restrict their movements (not attend school) pending a G.P. assessment.  This assessment is free and it is vital to use it in these circumstances. 

If the G.P. deems that no test is required, then the siblings can return to school (the child with symptoms needs to be symptom free for 48 hours before returning, to avoid the spread of any other bugs in the classroom).  If a test is required, then siblings continue to restrict movement until the result is confirmed.  We appreciate that this is potentially very inconvenient but it is necessary in order to keep such a crowded environment safe and it is the advice of Public Health. 

The symptoms of Covid-19 are:

Common: Fever or chills, a new cough, shortness of breath, loss or change in sense of smell or taste, fatigue, aches and pains.

Sometimes: Sore throat, headaches, runny or stuffy nose. 

Rare: Feeling sick or vomiting, diarrhea.

If your child has any of the symptoms above, you should not send them or their siblings to school pending a consultation with your G.P.    If your child develops any of these symptoms while is school, we will follow our procedures around isolation and ask that they and their siblings are collected.

We appreciate the school community’s help and co-operation in keeping everybody safe.

Go raibh maith agaibh,


Peter Jennings

Letter to Parents and Gaurdians

Dear Parents/guardians,

I am very happy to report that we have been informed of the phased reopening of schools beginning on Monday 1st March for our Early Start, Junior Infants, Senior Infants, First and Second classes. School will be open as normal but the HSE has asked that parents sign a form upon returning their child/children to the school. This form will be available for each family on Monday morning. This will require some patience and tolerance as you arrive at the school on Monday.

After this, it is planned that Third to Sixth classes will return to school on Monday, 15th March. At this point we will be fully open but in the meantime, online learning provision will continue for these classes.

It is very important that we try to strictly adhere to our infection control measures for everyone's safety and these will be communicated in detail to the school community once again but three key aspects for now:

1. If you are unwell, have been in contact with someone who is unwell, stay at home and contact the HSE for advice

2. Follow HSE advice with respect to hygiene, coughing/sneezing etiquette, social distancing, mask wearing.

3. Please do not congregate at drop off and pick up times If in any doubt with respect to symptoms, stay out of school and seek advice.

Contact the school with queries.

We are very happy at the prospect of returning and will strictly adhere to our infection control measures to keep the school environment and everyone in it safe.

Looking forward to seeing children return, with kind regards and God's blessings,

P. Jennings
